First things first, I’d like to apologise for my blog posts being a bit here and there recently. If you follow me on social media, I’ve been feeling rather down about it all and quite honestly, came very very close to just closing it down completely. I fell out of love with blogging and writing posts have been a real struggle for me. I think I’ve lost my way a little and my blog has become a place I’m no longer excited about and that’s something I need to work on. I have a few more lifestyle posts coming up, but in May I’m really going to be focussing on more fashion/style content and go back to my roots. Fashion has always been my thing so I’d love my content to be more focussed on that for a little while and see how it goes – let me know what you think!
Now, onto the outfit. Living the freelance life, I’m not sure how much money I have on a day to day basis, so my shopping habits have had to change a lot recently. I can’t always buy into the new trends (although I have an ASOS saved items page that goes on for days) and sales really are my best friend. It’s fun though as it challenges me to way things in different ways and I’m really enjoying playing around with different combinations – I especially love how this one has come together. I’d like to think I’m pretty good when it comes to hunting the best pieces out in sales and I think I’ve done well with this outfit – not one item wasn’t reduced WOO YEAH. From my bargain H&M hat which cost me less than a coffee (£2) to this biker-style denim jacket I found in M&S sale last winter (that I put to the back of my wardrobe for now) and these dusty pink pointed flats that I found in an M&S clearance market stall for a quarter of the price, these are easily some of my best finds in a long time. Not to mention this incredible high-neck white blouse which I found in my local Topshop sale a few weeks ago – I’d never seen it in store before, but there was one just randomly in the wrong sale rail in my size. Fate? I think so. I have a thing for high-neck ruffle blouses right now (someone bought the two blouses from a certain M&S collab last week… oops) as I just love how they add that hint of femininity to an outfit. Plus you can never have too many white blouses can you? (answer: the limit does not exist).
So what are your favourite items of the moment? I’d love to know!
